WildFire Undies is made up of a dynamic duo hand crafting each piece just for you! AE and Patrice were both raised right here in so-called Asheville, NC and share a deep love for these ancient mountains.
AE Silver (she/her) is an art school drop out who began her life in lingerie when she got an opportunity in late 2014 to start sewing for Elise Olson of On the Inside Lingerie. After taking construction and patternmaking classes from Anna Toth at Asheville School for the Apparel Arts, AE moved to Salt Lake City and began WildFire Undies in 2016. After growing WFU to a full time job, AE moved back to Asheville in 2019 where she operates out of a small home studio. She spends all of her spare time biking in the woods and hanging with her pup, Jed.
Patrice Audette (she/her) has been on a journey to figure out her passion for many years, and was given the push in 2020 when it seemed like just about everything was falling apart. She learned the very basics of sewing from her grandmother as a child, and decided to buy a sewing machine and develop her skills when she became unemployed during the pandemic. As a longtime fan of WildFire and a lingerie enthusiast, the opportunity to work alongside AE was an absolute dream come true. When she is not sewing she enjoys doing her makeup and twerking in her kitchen for her husband and 2 old dogs.
